• We use a new dataset combining more than 25 data sources, 3,500 country surveys, and
4 million respondents between 1973 and 2020 asking citizens whether they are satisfied
or dissatisfied with democracy in their countries.
• Using this combined, pooled dataset, we are able to present a time-series for almost 50
years in Western Europe, and 25 years for the rest of the world.
• We find that dissatisfaction with democracy has risen over time, and is reaching an
all-time global high, in particular in developed democracies.
